The Warrior Dash and St Jude

The Warrior Dash is 3.5 months away, and training is moving along. A friend and fellow competitor found this video, which gives us a taste of what we’re in for:

Bring it!

The obstacles look like fun. I’m more worried about all the running, but as I said, training’s moving along. I’m debating whether to follow a program like Couch to 5K again or  to just start running 5K every time I go out and work to improve my time. I’m leaning toward the latter just so I don’t end up missing a few days and blowing the whole thing.

At the same time, I’m going to help raise money for the St Jude Children’s Research Hospital, and I’m hoping you can help me. The Warrior Dash supports St Jude, which provides a tremendous service to the families of children with cancer and terminal illnesses. I can’t always support them monetarily, so I thought this would be a great way to make up for it.

St Jude makes it easy by providing runners with a personalized event page with a donate button. You don’t have to send me a thing; the donations all go directly to St Jude and you will receive a receipt. I would also appreciate it if folks would help spread the word by sharing the following link:

Or feel free to send them here, as my mug will be in the right-hand column with the appropriate links through the race weekend.

Thanks for checking it out, and I’m looking forward to providing several photos of my friends and I slogging through the mud in the Warrior Dash!
